UPDATES! Fellow project builder Fuzz and I purchased a HUGE lot of used film projector parts. If you’re into the SW style greeblies this is the place to start looking!
This was one of two boxes that arrived
Within the box… bag and bags of greeblie goodness
Remember those center console armrest levers that we couldn’t figure out so we just modeled and printed? I am 95% certain that they were / are film projector / editing arms. Look at the resemblance!
OK… enough gawking… time to get to work! The lower side panels are finally getting some attention
The 15″ extension panels needed some significant attention after removing the pin stripes and greeblies
Time to start pin striping!
I have NO IDEA what these odd shaped greeblies are. Maybe a lid to something or a trim piece to a reel to reel player? I don’t know…
They needed some work. Sanding and the holes drilled
Primer – that’s always a good thing
This is the basic location – the original designers adhered the rockers to them as well.
Onward… these door greeblies have been neglected for too long!
Slight warping – ewe
Second getting its primer
Let’s do a side by side compare with the old…
I then removed the old ones from the door panel – this IS why I no longer simply adhere things in place anymore – YUCK
NICE… not worth even trying to salvage at this point
Those look SO MUCH better than the first versions – still needs paint
I wish I knew what color(s) they used
As primer and filler were drying I was also jumping back and forth on the wall art pieces. Another little detail that caught my eye was color variation(s) between the panel top and the console housing. We can’t let that slip by again! Taping everything off
Gotta protect all that work, right?
A little flat black and satin clear later
What a difference
I then clear coated to the top panel
Once the clear coat dried I adhered the 1″ tiles
The knobs/dials that will go next to the nav screen – coat of black
Whew… still lots more to do!
